Cem Papila's international career was very short, it lasted only two years, from the beginning of 2005 till the end of 2006. He also quit nationally in that year. Papila is often seen on Turkish television, talking about football and referees.

biased

One of our Turkish correspondents told us Papilo once blatantly helped Fenerbahce win the cup. When Fener, behind in points, played Trabzonspor, Papila twice refused to award an obvious penalty to Trabzon and then in extra time awarded one to Fenerbahce instead, resulting in riots in Trabzon and Istanbul (where many people from Trabzon live). In the same year Papila sent off 4 Besiktas players.

This all may be the reason for his early demise.
